ABOUT THE WORK

Swing Dance


In the 1940's, GIs, sailors, and flyers enlisted to fight for our country, they were sent to major ports for a temporary stay before departure. These service men & women headed straight for the USO dance halls since dancing was by far the major form of recreation. As the 40s began, many GIs from all parts of the country now saw the Lindy/Jitterbug for the first time. Once they saw it however, they didn't waste any time learning how since dancing was the quickest way to break the ice in an age when time was very precious.
